Student grilled over suspicious T-shirt

FORT MYERS, Fla., March 5 (UPI) -- A Florida high school student was questioned by authorities for wearing a T-shirt they found threatening.

The unidentified boy at East Lee County High School in Lehigh Acres wore a T-shirt Wednesday reading, "A friend will help you move, but a real friend will help you move a body," a Lee County sheriff's report stated.

School officials searched his belongings and found written in his notebook: "What to write about. Doodles, I've been doodling a lot lately. I enjoy it a lot more than I used to. Maybe it's because I have more boring teachers. I could create something really amazing with them. I just need more research on the school, cafeteria, homeroom, math, main stairwell and front of school."

The boy told a deputy, "I just find it to be funny and I like the humor in the message. ... I was just free writing," the Naples News reported.
